Campaign funding: myself and local donations
Previous community service: I have delivered in the area for work for the past 12 years.
If elected, what steps would you take to improve housing affordability in PoCo?
Require 20% of new units be deemed affordable housing. Open up social housing options with rent based on income. Ensure existing and future apartments allow at least 15% of units for rental.
What do you hope to accomplish as a city councillor?
I hope I can push for a more equal city, where we can all benefit from our parks and services. I will promote job growth and make sure businesses are bringing a livable wage.
What do you believe is the biggest issue facing PoCo?
Inequality is our biggest issue. While housing and rent are unsustainable currently, if we were all benefiting equally, it wouldn’t be.
Would you change the mayor and council’s pay and why?
The jobs of council and mayor need to be treated as full-time jobs and paid accordingly. I’d raise it along inflation every four years.
